If Springer's Dinger went another 10 feet, it would have been 420.

Fun fact.

Welp, postseason spot guaranteed...so that means stocking up on plenty of alcohol, alprazolam, amyl nitrite, and hopes and prayers.

Keuchel made it out of the first inning without any damage! No, seriously, he really did!

Wonder if we'll see our old friend Giles in this series against the team from Kids in the Hall territory.

Massive balls by DK on that last K, Randy Marsh style, wheelbarrow balls(sorry, South Park moment). Great job getting out of that inning with the lead!

For a regular season game, this one feels very much like a postseason game.

Finally news on Carlos Ofer Correa----I guess his back is still bothering him and that is why he has been missing from the lineup. I think it is a good thing it they merely keep him out of post-season baseball because, with, or without him, the Astros are going anywhere. So, why keep him in there and keep hurting his back, or his head, or whatever? Let him rest up over the offseason and come back and start his Ofer string without any excuses except his inability to perform to expectations.

Looking forward to seeing James again tonight! He is fun to watch, hope he can shut down the Blue Jays hitters and our bats get it going early.

Wonder if we'll get to see Giles this series?

Pressly with the filthy nasty dirty to get out of a bases loaded situation.

Beautiful...and filthy, nasty, and dirty.

103 wins, chance to get 104 tomorrow. Whatever happens in October(BEST TIME OF THE YEAR!), it's still been another great season overall and a lot of fun to watch. They're playing good baseball going into the postseason, but they're going to be facing some really great teams as well.

Should be a fun adventure wherever it leads!

Still, I am worried about Morton and I hope tomorrow goes well for him. He's a really important piece of our rotation/pen and we've all see what he can do in big moments in the postseason(won't ever forget that game 7 of the WS!).

Oh, I meant Correa is a bum and should retire, etc.

That bases loaded AB by Maldonado was just horrible, my word. Not sure why they made the move to Gattis in the previous AB either, but he did just miss one that he normally could hit a mile. Would have been nice to see them break it open there, especially against Bauer.

On a brighter note, Oswalt is in the house! Wizard of Oz, baby!
